Empowering the Future: Esports, Education, and Economic Growth in the North
Join Chester King, CEO at The British Esports Federation for a talk on Esports, Education, and Economic Growth in the North.
Our talk will take place at the cutting-edge National Esports Performance Campus, our brand new headquarters in Sunderland, and a testament to our investment in infrastructure.
Esports has rapidly evolved into a multifaceted industry with far-reaching impacts. We’ll delve into the ways in which esports can empower individuals and transform communities and discuss how esports programs in academia help foster digital literacy, transferable skills, and lay the foundation for careers in creative sectors.
We’ll showcase real-world success stories and exemplify the potential esports holds for both personal and regional development and will explore the relationship between esports and economic growth, shedding light on how the North East is positioning itself as a tech hub and a catalyst for innovation. Learn how the National Esports Performance Campus will play a pivotal role in this transformation as a destination for live esports experiences.
We’ll also showcase, as part of partnership with Sunderland College, business ideas, pitches and proposals from a number of students currently studying the Level 2 and Level 3 BTEC in esports.
Join us at the forefront of change and witness how esports is shaping the future of education and economic growth in the North East.
